The Observation Concrete Tower

The concrete tower was inaugurated on December 17, 1991, is the highest point in Curitiba with its 109 meters height. It is located at Merces Disctrict.

At the top of the tower there is an observation deck that allows a 360 degrees view of the city. It belongs to a telecommunications company and that is why you will find a museum about this subject at the bottom of the tower. It is really cheap to access the tower (less than one dollar).
I have taken a lot of pictures from up there and in a near future I wil post a series about it.

  1. Olá Washington, a Fenaaostra ocorreu no Centro Sul, aquele centro de eventos grande que tem do lado da passarela de samba Nego Querido.
    Vc tem razão, estes restaurantes que vc citou estão entre os melhores da ilha, todos eles com uma culinária maravilhosa e localizados em locais perfeitos. O Pier 54 conheci recentemente, mas o que mais gosto destes que vc citou é o Ponta das Caranhas, e faz tempo que não vou também...

  2. It's a strange looking thing, but if it provides wonderful views, I'm all for it!

  3. Hi Hilda. You are right, it is strange and it is not something that I would put in my backyard, but watching from afar, the tower merges into the landscape and is even interesting. And as you will see, the view is really great!
